Canto XL

Daily Mail time. Every so often, someone points out that the money in the banks is our money. Or as Ez puts it:
Independent use of money (our OWN)
toward holding OUR bank, own bank
[...]
currency OF (O, F, of) the nation.
That use of capitals and repetition, that sense of pointing out the obvious, that only a darned sophisticate wouldn't see, is spot on.

This section, apparently deploring the way banking developed is then set against a passage apparently discussing the Carthaginian exploration of the west coast of Africa. I suppose what might be happening is that the parasitical behaviour of bankers is being contrasted with genuine exploration and trade-building.
